How to coordinate ASP and SSEPP
How does FTA anticipate the ASP working together with the System Security and Emergency Preparedness Program Plan (SSEPP)? Can we integrate the SSEPP into the ASP, essentially eliminating it as a document? Alternatively, can we separate safety from security functions and keep two distinct documents?
You are not required to incorporate existing safety procedures or process documents into your ASP. The PTASP regulation requires agencies to develop an ASP that meets the requirements defined in the regulation. To do this, agencies may develop a new plan that addresses all requirements, modify an existing plan to meet the new requirements, or develop a new plan that includes references to portions of existing documents that define how the agency meets specific requirements. An agency may use referenced materials to satisfy ASP requirements as long as the final ASP and any referenced information, when taken together, satisfy all requirements of the PTASP regulation.
